Your Horoscope: Week of Nov. 16-22, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Nov. 16-22, 2011
This Week: Mercury goes retrograde Nov. 23-Dec. 12. Be cautious of travel and communications. Back up your computer, check and double-check messages, and allow yourself plenty of time to get from point A to point B. I want to wish everyone the safest and happiest Thanksgiving Day. Take time out to share your gratitude with friends and loved ones. You can never express feelings of love too much or too often.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Romance is key this week as you gather your resources toward a better lifestyle. You may be putting too much emphasis on your long-term goals and not “making room” for your personal life to flourish. With that said, dinner reservations or a weekend away will bring in the balance you need for your long-term happiness.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Upsetting news regarding a child or pet may have your lip quivering a bit midweek. Expect the best, and use your own personal “power of prayer” to ensure a successful outcome. A female friend or family member may need a little more attention than usual. Pay close attention to the signals she is sending.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You may not be aware of it, but your lack of attention toward a friend or family member has been very hurtful toward them. Keep your lines of communication open with those whom you hold near and dear to your heart. Your schedule may be demanding, but a loss this great may be unbearable for you in the long run.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Celebrate with friends and family. Don’t hold back — you have been working your butt off to “get the job done,” and now you’re in a position to receive the fruits of your labor. Enjoy, and make room for the new as well as cherish those who have been in your life forever.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Take a leap of faith, and allow a wish to come true. Of course, there are always better things to spend your time and energy on. However, in the long run, the positive energy you receive from this aspect will create a rippling effect with all dynamics in your life. A child or a pet takes priority this week. Good news arrives regarding these matters.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Gentle encouragement with friends and loved ones is strongly advised. Until you have walked a mile in their moccasins, you can never comprehend what really goes on within the hearts and minds of others. You may even “learn something” from someone of an “unlike mind” as yours. Absorb it like a sponge.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Finances are a priority this week. You will find money easy to obtain if you put a little effort into it. Special bargains and deals will also fall into your lap if you use your “shopper’s” intuition. Your focus on little ones’ wishes for Christmas has put a spring in your step. You will be able to make all of their dreams come true.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This constant riddling of negative energy has you feeling depressed. Be cautious of whom you share time and space with, and be aware of the possible effects this could have on you in the long run. Find your roots, and look for guidance there. You will have the clarity to move forward in the best possible light by week’s end.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Your financial concerns are lifting. Plenty of support will arrive this week to set your mind at ease. Your holiday will be rescued after all as you receive help from some unusual sources. A long-overdue debt will be paid in your favor. Contact from a financial institution has some surprising positive results.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Romantic aspects may need a little TLC. You have been so exhausted with your financial worries that you have not been able to see the big picture with love. Everything falls into place when you are able to count your blessings. Be grateful for the good health and well-being of those around you. When you can wrap your brain around that, an unexpected surprise awaits you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Friends and family who have been out of touch make their way back into your life. Conflicting schedules have made it difficult to connect. Now, the time and energy moves in your favor. You will be elated with all of the good news and fortune you will receive now.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Good things come in small packages. Expect the unexpected from a friend or loved one this week. Although Christmas is only weeks away, it appears there is an early blessing arriving for you. Expansion with career presents itself midweek. Take advantage of this opportunity.
